No matter where you live
in the U.S., you undoubtedly
experience some sort of severe weather. From
snowstorms to hurricanes, we encounter many types of severe
weather. And when it does hit, it’s encouraging
to curl up in your cozy home and wait out the weather knowing your windows and
doors are shielding your home from the elements.
sure your home is ready with great
planning and protection, offering special attention to your
windows and doors and their installation so your home is ready
for bad weather.
Here are a handful
of simple tips:
- Be sure
you have a quality installation – A quality installation provides
the intended structural integrity and correct water
management during weather events.
- Consider hurricane impact windows and doors – Hurricane impact windows provide additional
protection to your home from objects that may
get tossed about in a storm.
- Inspect seals – Every window
and door has them, but depending on the age and location of your home, it is in your best interest to double check the seals that
help direct water away from your home during severe weather.
- Clear the area
around your home – One of the best things you can do to guard
your home is being sure that the surrounding
area has no debris or low
hanging branches that could crash into your
windows and doors.
